Vaporizing Character Effect

This is hypothetical:

We have been offered a effect in a film and we are competing with other studios to generate an effect where the main actor vanishes and then appears somewhere else in the shot. The main thing is the look of the effect. The director suggested the character vaporizes in some kind of mist or smoke and then the same effect also forms him back but he is up for suggestions. He wants to see tests over any kind of background and it can be a locked off shot, so we don’t have to worry about tracking. This is a R&D test but the better the look the more we have a chance of being awarded the show.
